  1. (U) JULLS NUMBER: 42366-78000(00016), submitted by

  5. (U) OBSERVATION: Our battalion only had a limited supply of
  M8AI batteries to operate the alarms on a 24 hour basis.

  6. (U) DISCUSSION: MSAL alarm batteries were only good for
  30-32 hours in the desert environment compared to its normal 72
  hours. There was also a shortage of batteries in country.

  7 (U) LESSON LEARNED: Our unit was only able to operate our
  b@tteries from dusk to dawn, so we wouldn't run out. We did not
  receive additional batteries until after the ground war.
  8. (U) RECOMMENDED ACTION: Theater supply must increase
  stockage levels for M8AI alarm batteries in a desert
  environment.

  9. (U) COMMENT: None.
